Beaufort by the Sea, Part One

Lovely, old, quaint Beaufort-by-the-Sea, is one of the best spots on the East Coast this time of year.  My family has been coming here my entire life and the area has changed a lot over the years.  It's a historic spot known for Blackbeard the Pirate, wild ponies (we have not seen them yet this visit), great seafood, fleets of huge yachts and sailbooats, quaint shops and much more. 

The old homes in Beaufort are lovely, most all are painted white and the most historic ones have a "plaque" placed on the front near the door, like this:

The plaque marks houses that are over 100 years old. 

Here are some photos of some of the older homes.  Most have been completely renovated and updated and bring a pretty penny, even today:
